the tragedy in benghazi that cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. john kerry, a long-time member of the senate, head of the foreign relations committee, will have no problem winning confirmation of that body. that will reconclude a fight there. that was a fight the president really didn't want to have this early in what will be his second term. so we expect the nomination to come later today. whether or not the president announces it himself we have yet to hear. back to you. jenna: wendell goler, thank you. jon: let's talk about all this with chris wallace. he is of course the anchor of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to dea
was announcing his nomination of kerry, republicans were on the hill attacking susan rice over ben benghazi this afternoon. >> the word she told on 16, september was completely out of line with reality on the ground. i just thought she was very eager to tell a story that did not make a lot of sense. i believe to suggest this thing was anything other than a terrorist attack fit a political narrative. >> i think senator kerry will be confirmed. i don't think there will be a huge dust up about this. there may be no dust up at all. people in the senate know him. republicans have said how much they respect him. but i want to say a word about susan rice. i know her and i've worked with her. she's a person on enormous talent and enormous integrity. you listen to the stuff we just heard. you're tempted to buy a line from history. senator, have you no sense of decency left? to suggest that this person who has given a lot to this country, somehow or other, was intentionally misleading americans is wrong. and i have some news for them if they don't like her. guess what, she's going to be around for th
to secretary graham talking about the secretary and the benghazi hearing. >> when her hearing date comes she should testify as current secretary of state. she should be asked, as far as i can tell there was no interview of her in preparing this report. she needs to be asked about what she knew about the deteor eighting circumstances in benghazi. >> we should say she did not appear because she is recovering from that concussion she took as a result of a fall. but have we seen the full fallout from benghazi yet? >> not yet. there's still areas that i'm sure congress is going to want to explore. and i think that senator graham sing correct, that secretary clinton should be asked questions that she apparently was not asked during the course of the investigation. and be held accountable for them. i think that she will be. i think she will testify very forthrightly and one of those issues where, you know, you said at the top of the department and not everything comes to your attention. what the report cited was xroes inadequacies in terms of leadership and management skills at that bureau level an
immediately following what happened in benghazi and trying to explain that on behalf of the administration. when she went up to capitol hill to meet with lawmakers the visits backfired. they raised a lot of questions and she was there to try to answer them and try to assuage concerns, that was true with senator susan hollins of maine, a republican but a moderate and that was seen as very troubling in all of this process. some critic also say, don, that without the nomination, she was left twisting in the wind but there's also this sense that president obama has a whole lot on his plate. he's obviously involved in this fight over the striking a deal on the fiscal cliff, and then going into next year, a lot of goals obviously to follow on that entitlement reform, spending cuts, tax reform and don't forget immigration reform is also a priority, so i think there was a sense that do you really spend all of this political capital on this fight when there's so many other things to do. >> and so she referenced that as well in her letter that she put out yesterday. alyse, you cover the state depart

a briefing of a new state department report on the benghazi consulate. >> ensure the safety of our fellow americans serving our nation overseas. it's a good start but it's only a start. a tragedy in benghazi raise a lot of other serious questions about our military, intelligence community, and perhaps most importantly, the administration so-called light footprint approach to libya and so many other challenges. they do not provide answers to these questions because it never asked them. it's essential defense department conducted similar independent and comprehensive accountability effort on the occasion of the worst terrorist attack in american history after repeated attacks on u.s. and western interests in benghazi. why were no, no, no. to assets or units posture, alert and ready to respond to what should've been a foreseeable contingency? one in which two of the four people who lost their lives were killed in the seventh hour of the attack. this raises larger questions that the defense department must consider. what greater role doing the our military to play in the defensive our diploma
